A Note From Ricky Tims-- A Call for Art Quilt Entries

Dear International Quilting Friends ,

I wanted to let you know about a very exciting new juried/judged quilt show and competition that our gallery is directing and curating. It is called Expressions: The Art Quilt. We hope to have a truly international exhibit showcasing approximately 50-60 of the best art quilts from around the world. We're not just seeking the best in the US, but we know that there are amazing art quilters worldwide and this is the show developed to highlight the best of the best worldwide. If you have a work that has been completed since January 1, 2005 we heartily encourage you to submit your work for consideration. The Best of Show Prize is $2000USD and includes the opportunity to have ongoing gallery representation through Tims Art Quilt Studio and Gallery. Full details and entry forms are available at and the deadline for entries is July 21. The exhibit will not only show in our gallery here in Southern Colorado, but will embark on a two year, international tour. Quilts may be for sale if you choose, but is not required. We also ask that you forward this email to all of your excellent quilt artist friends so that they will know about this opportunity too. Thank you for helping to spread the word. We look forward to your entries. Please reply to this email and Wendy Wetzel, our gallery manager will assist you if you have further questions. Best Regards,Ricky Tims

I love quilts. They keep you warm in the winter with their quilty goodness. A bit like cornflakes with warmed milk.

Great blog!

Thanks for sharing Ricky Timm's announcement. I'm so lucky to have him for such a close neighbor, he lives in one of my favorite parts of Colorado and has his gallery open to the public. It's well worth the trip to see the La Veta Valley, at the foot of the Spanish Peaks, as well as his gallery.

Okay Deb, what will you be sending to Ricky Timm's? July 21 is 6 weeks away!

I will try entering my Aussie Challenge Quilt 'Why?'. It fits within the rules & aside from adding a back to it, it's done! But it's a juried show, so there's no guarentee that it'll be accepted.
